Benjamin Somverville                                                  Finn Scott

 

As the middle of another busy year in residential and commercial design approaches, we are delighted to announce some exciting new appointments at Bossley Architects.

Benjamin Somerville has been appointed an Associate. He has been with us for ten years and has been a valuable member of our team. He has been involved in a number of significant projects, including the recently completed Hearing House in Greenlane.

Benjamin’s technical skills have seen him make an invaluable contribution to the Park Hyatt Hotel on the Auckland waterfront, including preparation of the BIM model of this very complex building currently under construction.

We look forward to Benjamin’s input in to more managerial roles in projects and in the studio.

Finn Scott has now become a Senior Associate. As an Associate for the last few years, Finn has been working on projects as varied as apartment buildings in the Vinegar Lane development and more than 100 terrace houses, walk-ups and apartments at Hobsonville.

He has been involved in designing and overseeing a beach house on Waiheke Island, and is currently Project Architect on a large sculptural house in Takapuna, being built of in-situ white concrete.

Finn became a Registered Architect in 2017.

We are delighted to be announcing these changes during a year which has been stimulating and busy so far. Our 19-strong team looks forward to continuing to work with our clients, collaborators and consultants producing award-winning buildings of the very highest quality.

As always, our aim is to produce “Architecture that lifts the spirit”.

Level two is underway at The Hearing House in Greenlane, with the exterior wall framing getting started. The roof is due to be complete in two weeks.

The curtain wall glazing is ongoing at the Plant and Food Hamilton building in Mt. Albert, with level three now underway.

The new services configuration can be seen here also, with a ‘saddle bag’ dropping down the side of the building, this will be finished with a perforated aluminum screen.

Construction on the Park Hyatt hotel is racing along, there are two cranes on site, the basement is almost complete, and the steel structure in place in one quadrant. The structural steel includes full height continuous columns which are 22m long!

In an extensive interview ‘Future by design‘ in the May issue of M2 magazine, Pete talks about the importance of architecture, how it is produced, medium density housing and urban intensification in Auckland, the exorbitant cost of building materials and the need for designers to maintain a radical viewpoint in the face of a world that favours conservatism.
